The Cruel And Aimless War On Yemen

….The newly arrived forces are supported by some local tribes and southern separatist groups. Today the invaders are trying to kick Saleh forces from the Al Anad air base near Aden. The invasion force wants to drive the Houthi not only from the south but also from power up north in the capitol Sanaa. The few planes with humanitarian aid that were allowed to fly into Sanaa are now ordered to land only in Aden. The north of Yemen is thereby completely isolated and cut off from all resources.

But look at this map of tribal areas within Yemen and around it.

Will all those various tribes and local interests agree with a foreign imposed agenda? Will the starving but still well armed Yemenis let those rich troops just pass? Or will they rather fight and sabotage any foreign forces that try to move out of Aden?

Not bothered by the U.S.-Saudi war on Yemen AlQaeda in the Arab Peninsula has practically taken over the comparably rich eastern Yemeni governate of Hadhramaut. The 23rd brigade of Yemeni forces holding the governate was, allegedly accidentally, bombed by Saudi jets. AlQaeda also captured the eastern port of AlMukallah and uses it to supply its area. No Saudi air strike hindered its recent expansion. There are rumors that AQAP will soon declare Hadhramaut a new Islamic Emirate under its rule.

Between 1962 and 1970 Egypt fought a war in Yemen against predominately Yemeni forces. Some 25,000 of its soldiers were killed in that war. I expect that the current U.S. supported invasion of Yemen, like the Egyptians, will get bogged down within a month or two.

Meanwhile many Yemeni civilians will silently die from lack of access to water, food and medicine.

Saudi Army’s Positions Come under Yemeni Artillery Attack

The Yemeni army and popular forces inflicted heavy casualties on the Saudi army in artillery attacks on their positions near a strategic border crossing in Southern Saudi Arabia.

At least a Saudi military man was killed and three others were injured when Yemeni forces pounded the Saudi positions near al-Tawal border crossing with artillery shells.

Al-Tawal is Saudi Arabia’s main crossing in al-Tawal province and it links Yemen to Saudi Arabia.

On Tuesday, the Yemeni forces fired mortar shells at a military position in the al-Tawal district of the Saudi Province of Jizan, forcing the troops there to leave behind their military vehicles and escape the base.

Yemeni forces also shelled the al-Dood military zone and the village of Khobah in Jizan, inflicting losses on Saudi military equipment.

The allied forces also fired rockets at the al-Jihad military zone in Jizan, while a similar attack was launched on Arrabeh and Rabouah zones in the Zahran district in the Southern Saudi province of Asir.

The attacks also targeted the al-Haras military camp in Nahuqah district, in the Southern province of Najran.

Meanwhile, the Yemeni forces retook a major police station South of the city of Ta’izz, in Western Yemen from the terrorist groups and pro-Hadi militants.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 133 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 5,333 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.

Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.

Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
